Go Inside Your Apps
AppFirst uses unique, patent-pending "miss nothing" technology to continuously extract deep data from within every application, component, and running process on every server, virtual machine, and cloud instance in your environment. We see every interaction between the application and the operating system so you never miss anything that happens while your application is running in production.

Extend Existing Monitoring Solutions
No doubt you’ve already got some monitoring solutions in your toolbox. Do you have Nagios or some other tool? We realize that you have already made these investments and we can help you do more with them. AppFirst collects data from your existing Nagios plugins (or Windows Performance Counters) and then aggregates it with the detailed app and server data we are collecting. Having all of this data aggregated in a time-series-based approach is the key to simplifying troubleshooting.
Log File Collection
We know you have log files and lots of them. Maybe there’s some info embedded in them that you’d like to see or be alerted to? No problem. Simply configure AppFirst to collect the log files you care about and we’ll send it to our backend where you can see them alongside all of the other data we’re collecting.
Automated App Stack Metrics
AppFirst automatically detects your application stack, creates the required scripts to stream your metrics, and delivers a customized dashboard specific to your environment. Got a Ruby stack? We’ll know whether you are using MySQL or PostgreSQL, Redis, Passenger, and more. And we’ll automatically start collecting subsystem-specific metrics, such as the number of transactions, connections, slow queries, and row operations in the case of MySQL. No need to lift a finger!
